Man accused of 9 rapes sentenced to 120 years

DENVER – A man prosecutors called one of the most prolific sexual predators in the Denver metro area in recent years was sentenced to 120 years in prison.

The Denver District Attorney’s office says nine rapes were linked to 45-year-old Michael Lollis through DNA evidence. Lollis had earlier pleaded guilty to six counts of sexual assault and two counts of attempted sexual assault.

He was sentenced Thursday after a judge refused his request to withdraw his pleas.

Prosecutors say the rapes happened in Denver and Arapahoe County.

Police arrested Lollis in 2008.
